Of all the holidays, Thanksgiving may be the best one. It is a day where you can justifiably eat as much as you physically can, all while surrounded by family and friends. I can’t think of many occasions when eating yourself into a food coma is acceptable, and I embrace it with open arms- or an open mouth, in this case.
One thing to be grateful for this year is that you no longer have to wait hours for said food to finish cooking. Although cooking your Thanksgiving dishes in the microwave may be frowned upon by your mother, it’s the best alternative modern technology can offer. After all, who wants to spend all day in the kitchen, especially if you're just to whipping up a meal for two. And technically, cooking in the microwave still qualifies as homemad. So suck on that mom!
Quick and delicious go together like ice cream and pumpkin pie — and did I mention you can make that in a microwave too? Everything from mashed potatoes, to cranberry sauce, and an apple pie recipe so good that you’ll never go back to the oven again can be made in a matter of minutes. And that’s definitely something to be thankful for.
